Please note: For both EMT and OEC, it is your responsibility to be familiar with these guidelines and the respective scope of practice for your level.

On Triage and START

As a follow up to the refresher, reminder that START triage is accomplished using the mnemonic RPM:

  1. Check Respiration’s. (You may once to open the airway using maneuvers appropriate to the injury) No breathing: RED
  2. Check Pulse – Radial pulse present? No? RED
  3. Check mental status/mentation. (Are they conscious? Decreased?) RED

You can also use Sick/Not Sick. Sick patients (but not dead ones) go first.

Remember, your goal is to get Sick/RED patients off the hill and to the hospital.

Fergie is in the process of creating new graphics and commentary regarding Triage.

More to follow.

(this is an addendum to my OEC Refresher talk as I misspoke a few things).
